About this book

Presents an overview of what is known about thermoregulation in all of the major insect groups, offering new insights on physiology, ecology, and evolution. The book is richly illustrated by the author's sketches.

"Heinrich is a wonderful writer – a gifted naturalist with a great love for his study objects who has mastered the detailed physiological analyses and who is himself an excellent experimental scientist. This is a great book."
- Bert Holldobler

"From one man's persistent and elegant probing of the temperature biology of bees, we have been led to a deeper understanding of the whole biology of many insect taxa, and of their interactions with ecological and environmental stresses: all who work at the interfaces of physiology, ecology and behaviour have cause to be grateful, and all should certainly read this book."
- Trends in Ecology & Evolution

"An outstanding source of information, and can be read with profit and satisfaction by the professional biologist and interested amateur alike."
- Nature
